If Tesla elects to sell the Cybertruck in the EU, it will require it to meet EU standards. Tesla is very familiar with such standards as all its vehicles are sold in Europe to meet such standards. It's unclear that the Cybertruck will need to meet EU's pedestrian requirements for small vehicles, being a truck. We're not aware of any trucks in the EU that currently meet the pedestrian requirements of sedans and other small vehicles.
Unlike other most vehicles sold today, Tesla vehicles avoid hitting pedestrians as part of the free safety package on every vehicle they sell now. This same safety system is included standard in the Cybertruck, making the Cybertruck one of the most pedestrian safe trucks sold anywhere in the world.
